    thanks for the linky

    deffo seems to be a reliable seller
    was wondering if anyone views on it, i.e anyone seen a similar polisher? or even bought one?

    i fancy a polisher but cant afford/justify a PC and want something a bit more usefull then a argos round thingy


    damn this site............. was always happy with a bucket and sponge once a month but not no more!

    The only thing to watch for when using it is that a rotary polisher will generate heat on the paintwork, so just handle with care and you should be alright.

    Nothing wrong with that for £20. Its basically the same as a Silverline which the Detailing World guys have given very good reports on for our type of use. The thing you will want to do though is ditch the pads and get some Megs ones which are about £10-15 a pop. Then your on your way, just make sure you practice on an old bonnet before you take it to your own car.

    Saw an interesting video on youtube concerning polishers.

    How much pressure to apply................

    Get out you digital scales from the bathroom and press down with the polisher until the desired pressure is reached. I believe it was 7lbs.(please check) Do this a couple of times and you will learn the correct pressure to use the polisher.

    So when you go to the car you will not exert too much pressure and burn the car.

    Thats my 2p worth............

    These things weigh a bit on there own. Sweep with the trigger hand and only use the other hand to hold, balance and apply light pressure to the head.
